Choosing the right curly hair type products

Choosing the right hair products for curly hair can be a daunting task, especially if you're new to embracing your natural texture. Here are some tips to help you find the best hair products for your curly hair type:

  1. Are you a wavy wonder, a curly cutie, or a kinky queen?

    The first step in choosing the right hair products for your curly hair type is to determine your curl type. Curly hair can range from loose waves to tight coils, and different curl types require different hair products. You can determine your curl type by using the curl type chart, which categorizes curls into four types: wavy, curly, coily, and kinky.

  2. Look for Moisture:

    Curly hair tends to be dry, so it's important to choose hair products that provide moisture. Look for hair products that contain hydrating ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, or glycerin. Avoid hair products that contain drying ingredients like rubbing alcohol or sulfates.Photo of a girl with thick curly hair
  3. Fine hair, don't care? Thick hair, bring on the tricks:

    In addition to your curl type, your hair texture also plays a role in choosing the right hair products. If you have fine hair, look for lightweight products that won't weigh your hair down. If you have thick hair, look for products that provide more hold and definition.

  4. Try Before You Buy:

    With so many hair products on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. Try sample sizes or travel sizes before committing to a full-size product. This way, you can test the product without spending a lot of money. We offer just that with our Wuli Grooming Curl Cream.

  5. Get your curls pampered by a pro:

    If you're unsure about which hair products to choose, consider consulting with a professional stylist who specializes in curly hair. They can recommend products based on your curl type and hair texture. If you’re in Sydney, check out our stockist page for curl specialist who can take care of your sensitive locks.
